Calcium is a mineral that plays an important role in maintaining bone health. Calcium is essential to your health in a number of ways. One of calcium’s main jobs is to strengthen bones and teeth. When the bones go through a natural process of breaking down, calcium helps to build new bones. Other functions of calcium include transmitting nerve signals, releasing hormones, contracting muscles, helping blood vessels function, and clotting blood. Since the body cannot produce its own calcium you must get it from foods or supplements. The amount of calcium you need depends on your age. Women ages 50 and younger and men ages 70 and younger need 1,000 milligrams daily. Calcium deficiency can lead to osteopenia and osteoporosis.
Plant-based calcium is a great option for people that are vegan or are unable to digest other forms of calcium. A great way to get your source of calcium is from plants. The Dr. Kenawy formula is made from certified organic whole foods.
